HONOLULU — Players and coaches descended on the Marriott Ihilani on Tuesday afternoon, all more than happy to have arrived safe and sound in paradise.
You can check out a photo gallery of Tuesday’s player arrivals, the highlight of which was Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and his entourage. I’m still trying to get confirmation on whether or not the person pictured above, trailing Rodgers, is actor Zach Galifianakis.
Players and coaches all have meetings tonight, followed by their first walkthrough.
Judging by the scene at the pool bar, alcohol will be a factor. But that’s all part of the game plan here (well, not the actual game plan). Lei’d back (see what I did there?) and relaxed is the way most are playing it, with those who left their children at home happy to enjoy some down time after the stress of a long season.
The other category includes the likes of Saints QB Drew Brees, making the rounds at the pool with his young son, who by the looks of it, just learned to walk.
Practices start tomorrow morning at 9 a.m. We’ll surely have more from there.
